Christmas is a time to affirm one’s faith. It’s a time to see loved ones. It’s a time to make merry. And it’s a time to smash world records!

Some people “do Christmas.” These folks take it to the next level:

  • There’s Tim Gay and his whopping 687,000 Christmas lights.
  • Sylvia Pope, a.k.a. Nana Baubles, has a record-setting collection of more than 1,700 Christmas tree ornaments.
  • Multiple Guinness World Record holder David Rush has done it again by gift wrapping a person faster than anyone has before.
  • And Adam Wise has broken his own world record by amassing nearly 8,000 Christmas brooches.
